The story began in 1971. The goal was simple: “Open a store that sells the highest quality, highest end, most specialized equipment, gear, and apparel in the entire outdoor industry… and in this store, we will only hire those individuals who are absolutely, 100%, no questions asked, dedicated to rendering POSITIVELY OUTRAGEOUS CUSTOMER SERVICE, to all people, in all instances, and at all times. Period!”
42 Years Later
Today, 42 years later, Hudson Trail Outfitters, Ltd. exists as an empire of authentic, outdoor enthusiasts, relentless in our pursuit to bring you, the customer, the newest, the latest, the most cutting edge equipment, gear and apparel in the outdoor retail market!

We specialize in mountain-sport, run-sport, paddle-sport, tri-sport, snow-sport – we GUARANTEE everything that we sell, and we ONLY sell the best! We maintain that providing the most courteous, the most efficient, and the most dependable service mattered in 1971 when we first opened our doors in a little city outside Washington DC, and that same service matters today!
